Securing your domain name

Securing your domain name

Let’s start simple! Securing your domain name is one of the easiest and least expensive steps.

The very first step to setting up your website is securing your domain name. If you’ve already done this, you can skip to Getting web hosting.


What’s in a name

The domain name will ideally be an exact match of your business or product name. For a business, leave off any of the formal Inc, LLC, etc. Before you go ahead and buy that name, make sure you can secure the other online usernames that you intend to use. We recommend getting at least Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Google+. An awesome place to do all this research at once, and even secure the accounts for a small fee is KnowEm. Give it a go and see if your company name is available on the sites you want to use. This tool makes securing your domain name easier than ever.

Where to buy your Domain Name

Once you are ready to secure your domain name, you need to consider where to buy it. GoDaddy is well known but there are a lot of mixed opinions about them. We’ve used them in the past, but currently use Namecheap for most domains. Namecheap gives you WhoIS privacy protection free for a year which we highly recommend. This keeps your address, phone number, name and email address off of the public list.

What you will use your domain name account for

You may notice that there are a ton of options for you to manage your domain after you purchase it. Later you will use this account to point your domain name at the web hosting server that will actually host your website. You can also do the same to point email to a server like gmail and make sure your email is properly identified.

Now that you’ve finished securing your domain name, it’s time to move on to Getting web hosting.
